A groundbreaking new Alzheimer’s drug was just approved by the Food and Drug Administration, offering a glimmer of hope for those who suffer from a very debilitating disease. 

“This is the first time the FDA has conditionally approved a drug for the early treatment of Alzheimer’s in 20 years,” said ABC’s chief medical correspondent, Dr. Jennifer Ashston. “This is something that is potentially encouraging for the 1 in 9 Americans over the age of 65 who are facing a diagnosis of Alzheimers.”

There are more than five million Americans that now have the disease, officials say, and it was one of the leading causes of death in this country before the pandemic. 

For many, the approval of this drug, known as Aduhelm, offers a light at the end of a very dark tunnel. 

However, the new medication is not without complications and controversy. What are some of those concerns?

Even with Fed and inflation concerns, stocks may set new records

Inflation and the Fed tapering its bond program are two big worries for the market, but strategists expect stocks to hit a series of new highs this summer even so.

The Fed is expected to continue to view inflation as transitory and keep its easy policies in place when it meets in June.

Earnings strength and the booming economy are expected to be catalysts for the stock market.

The S&P 500 was lower Monday as the market meanders ahead of next week’s Fed meeting. The S&P 500 was slightly less than 20 points below the May 7 high of 4,238 in early afternoon trading.

Will we be in for a more steady bull market this summer?

Here’s how to catch a glimpse of this week’s ‘ring of fire’ solar eclipse

Coming off of a spectacular lunar eclipse just a few weeks ago, some of the word is in for another celestial treat: a solar eclipse will take place on June 10.  

When the darkened moon moves in front of the sun, a large portion of North America and Europe will be able to see at least a partial eclipse early Thursday morning. The eclipse is referred to as an annual solar eclipse, which means it is not a total eclipse. The last time North America experienced a total eclipse was in 2017, and 2024 is the next date for another one.

But a small portion of onlookers will be able to see something rare and mesmerizing while safely observing this week’s eclipse: the “ring of fire.” This is when all but the edges of the sun are blocked by the moon, making it look like the darkened moon’s edges are on fire.  

What else makes this eclipse rare and who are the lucky onlookers that will get the best view?
